What is SD! doing to my backup volume?

As an experiment, I ran DiskWarrior 4.2 on my backup volume. It found some minor problems and fixed them.

Then I did a Smart Backup of my boot drive to the volume, then immediately ran DiskWarrior again. Here's what it reported:

5 files had a directory entry with an incorrect text encoding value that was repaired.
2 folders had a directory entry with an incorrect custom icon flag that was repaired.
The Root Creation Date was repaired.
Critical values in the Volume Information were incorrect and were repaired.

I'm not too concerned with the first 2 reports, but the last 2 are a bit troubling (I suspect they may both refer to the same issue, since isn't the Root Creation Date part of the Volume Information?)

Is it possible that SD! just cheerfully copied wrong information from the source drive? Is there any way it could fix bogus information instead of propagating it?
